Crochet Christmas Minion!

Now that Halloween's over, I'm jumping straight into holiday posts.  I'm a firm believer in keeping all things Christmas (decor, music, etc) on hold until after Thanksgiving, but I had to share this Christmas Minion based on a pattern by Stephanie Jessica Lau of All About Ami.  I finished him up this week and sent him off to be donated to the St. B. School (the school I attended for grades 1 - 8) Silent Auction that will be held next weekend.

The pattern I used is for a "regular" minion, so I changed the color of his outfit and added a Santa hat to make him more Christmas-y.  I also crocheted his eyes and embroidered his mouth since I don't use felt on any of my projects.  All the changes I made can be found on my Ravelry project here.  I absolutely love the way Minion turned out.  He's adorable, big, and huggable!  The pattern was very easy to follow and I would definitely consider making another in the future.  I hope Minion's new family loves him as much as I do!
